                CORDUROY:  Pearl Jam


(Intro):  B (barred at the 7'th)  to   (E barred at the 7'th)
           Hammer on the A and D strings.  Listen to CD for rhythm.


 F (at 8)  E (at 7)  D (at 5)
 The waiting drove me mad.
 F  E  D
 You're finally here and I'm a mess.
 F  E  D
 I'll take your interest back.
 F  E  D
 Can't let you roam inside my head.

 C                 G*              A   G (1'st position)
 I don't want to take what you can give.
 C                 G*              A   G (1'st position)
 I would rather starve than eat your bread.
 C                 G*              A   G (1'st position)
 I would rather run but I can walk.
 C                 G*              A   G (1'st position)
 Guess I'll lie alone just like before.

 (Intro)

 F  E  D
 I'll take the firmest path.
 F  E  D
 and I must refuse your test.
 F  E  D
 Push me and I will resist.
 F  E  D
 This behavior's not unique.

 C                 G*              A   G (1'st position)
 I don't want to live for those who know.
 C                 G*              A   G (1'st position)
 They can buy but can't put on my clothes.
 C                 G*              A   G (1'st position)
 I don't want to wait for them to walk.
 C                 G*              A   G (1'st position)
 Never would have known of me before.
 C                 G*              A   G (1'st position)
 I don't want to be held in your debt.
 C                 G*              A   G (1'st position)
 I'll pay it off in blood then I'll be wed.
 C                 G*              A   G (1'st position)
 I'm already cut up and half dead.
C                 G*              A   G (1'st position)
 I'll end up alone like I began.

 (?? not sure.  Something like the intro with an alternating B and E)
 Everything has changed.
 Absolutely nothing's changed.
 Take my hand.
 Grab my picture.
 Still my teacher.

 C                 G*              A   G (1'st position)
 I don't want to take what you can give.
 C                 G*              A   G (1'st position)
 I would rather starve than eat your breast.
 C                 G*              A   G (1'st position)
 All the things that others want from me.
 C                 G*              A   G (1'st position)
 Can't buy what I want because it's free.
 C                 G*              A   G (1'st position)
 Can't buy what I want because it's free.
 C                 G*              A   G (1'st position)
 Can't be what you want because I'm. .  .

G* is just a plain G barre chord at the 3'd.  For some reason this works.  Also, on the 1'st position
G, it sounds good if you pick down the first 3 strings after hitting the chord.  (Listen to the
recording.)


That's about it.  In any case, don't get angry if I butchered the lyrics.  A friend
album, I'm just not sure if its worth the time to type and upload them.  If enough people E-Mail me,
I'll do it, I guess.  You can also E-mail me with comments, corrections, or for any other reason you
might have.  Have a nice day.
